Ingredients Nutrition


  1. wash rice dry thoughly with a cloth.( i skipped this step and used brown rice ).
  2. fry bacon strips until limp, not crisp. i used cast iron skillet cause then you can just put in oven .
  3. remove bacon from pan.
  4. brown the rice and minced onion in the bacon fat.
  5. stir constantly to prevent burning.
  6. add chili powder.
  7. when brown add tomatoes and seasonings. (darlenes canned tomatoes had alot of juice for this dish ,if using canned store bought just fill can with water after dumping in tomatoes).
  8. let simmer until rice swells up.
  9. one pint of drained corn may be added at this time if desired. (i used 1/2 cup ,it was plenty ).
  10. pour into greased baking dish and bake 40 minutes in 350 degree oven.
  11. place the bacon strips over dish about 10 minutes before removing from oven.
